The scope of Corporate Data Protection

One of the effects of globalization and of the deriving globalized market is the rising of large corporations in almost every sector, ranging from finance over real estate to IT. These companies are owned by various shareholders and not by a single person (sole proprietorship) or several individuals (partnership).

The largest corporations are to be found in the USA: Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and Walmart, to name a few. Several of these companies are active worldwide: Having to deal with international data transfers, multinational corporations often develop their own internal dynamics in order to deal with privacy issues.

The question now is: Do data protection laws also apply to corporations? Generally speaking, these regulations do not apply to corporations themselves. However, they do apply to all personal data processed by the corporation, for example in relation to clients and employees. This may include business e-mails and phone numbers.

How can corporate data be protected?

One of the main ways to ensure the safety of personal data collected is to ensure that only few people have access to the physical storage units. When dealing with digitalized information, it is important that daily backups and regular data protection audits are performed. Usually, for this work efficiently, a (group) Data Protection Officer is employed.
